Rated 5 out of 5 by MsMail Sucking it up
My Eureka Boss Smartvac is a great product at a fair price. It works so well that I now have one at home and bought the same one for work. Home gets pretty dirty living in the country and having a 2 year old but work is even worse. Paper dust, bugs everywhere, the 2 year old comes...emplyees and customers in and out without care but the Eureka has great sucking power and really gets it picked up. The attachments are convenient and easy to use, replacement bags are affordable and it's easy to switch from floor to carpet. Just wish it had a longer cord. Great product!
Rated 3 out of 5 by motherof3teens Very good... BUT
I love it in general. It's quieter than many and the pick up is great! However I can't find the bags for it. The local stores and this site do not sell them!
Rated 5 out of 5 by wallyshopr I luv this vac !!!
I highly recommend this vacuum.I have two cats and two dogs and it picks up great!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by spinnakerun best one yet!
Works great, best one I have ever had. No more smell when I clean. I was surprised to see all the dirt that my old one was leaving behind. Very happy with this one. A little heavy, but worth it, to get the cleaning power it has.

This vacuum has so much suction it is very difficult to use on area carpets-unless you have someone standing on the end to keep it from being pulled back. It is also very heavy and I found it difficult to release the handle to use the cleaner. The handle is also awkward compared to my old cleaner. Purchased it 1 week ago and returning it today.
Rated 1 out of 5 The brush roller wouldn't turn so I returned it to the store. Now I need to figure out how to get the extended warranty money back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cruiserx A WONDERFUL SURPRISE!
After my hoover windtunnel twin chamber bagless vac bit the dust,I was off to the races to find another.I knew that I wanted to go back to a bagged design because the bagless ,for as modern as they are,was just way to messy for me.I looked and tested all of the top rated vacs from kenmore,hoover etc. and this vacuum was just fantastic.The suction power is off the charts!The motor is very quiet and smooth and it is very comfortable to use thanks to the contour handle.The brushroll is made of "real"heavy wood,not plastic like hoover and dyson's are.It absolutly does a great job on my carpet.The brushroll really gets down deep in the carpet and combined with the strong suction power,It makes my carpet look new and clean.The only thing I can somewhat complain about, and this is also a tip, is the brushroll control switch.Although it works great,you have to make sure it is fully snapped back in the barefloor position when you have it in the upright position and are going to use the airflow hose.The motor will sometimes grab the brushroll a little and burn the belt somewhat.I think this is the reason some people have complained about the belt.I am very pleased with this vacuum and would want no other.I do recomend that you use the true hepa bags made by 3m for this unit.You can only buy them at bestbuy.They are the very best bags you can get and they last longer and filter much better than the standerd bags.You have to give this vac at least a 2 week try out.You wont be returning it!!

Can not say enough good things about this unit. It is very powerful. We had a Dirt Devil before we bought this Hoover and the differance is amazing. This unit is not "self propelled" like one reviewer states, but is so powerful that is pulls itself along well. I am a big fan of "Consumer Reports" and this particular model was very well rated. They were on the money with the report. This model is absolutely the best bang for your buck you will find. A friend has a $1200.00 Kirby and says the Hoover is every bit as powerful and half the weight.

OK, we can now leave an informed and intelligent review after using this product for a couple of months. We read ALL of the reviews prior to buying this vacuum in early December. We were encouraged by these reviews, but were waiting to try this out in our home to see if it would live up to all of the positive things people were saying. Like most reviewers, we were wanting to move away from the near-worthless bagless vacuums that may be a lot cheaper in price but have such a low performance history. We saw this bagged vacuum and the reviews, and gave it a shot. The first time we used it, it became clear to us that the positive reviews that people have been leaving for this vacuum were spot-on. It does a fantastic job in all regards. The difference between what this vacuum picks up and our year-old bagless picked up is night and day. The house smells fresh (we have a dog, 2 teenages, and a toddler), and the carpet does indeed look new again after vacuuming. We do not have one negative thing to say about this product. For what it does, the price is ridiculously low. The costs of the bags is pretty minimal. All around a fantastic product that we would reccommend to everyone to try.
Rated 1 out of 5 by assured45 Major Fail!
I will refrain from using inappropriate language as per the Helpful tips/Guidelines. I purchased this vacuum cleaner online and picked it up at a nearby Walmart store. I began to assemble it immediately after I got home. The assembly was fairly easy and all seemed well until the part where it said switch lever to carpet mode. The lever would not stay in carpet mode once switched.....AND the vacuum DOES NOT RECLINE AT ALL! I called the customer service number on the instructions and was told that this was most likely a manufactures defect. I understand that mistakes are made, but to buy a brand new piece of merchandise only to find that the main component required for it to work is defective just erks the you know what out of me. What happened to quality control..does it exist anymore? I was given the option to either have the item repaired or exchange/refund. Seeing as though I've had my old Eureka vaccum (bought used) for 7 years until it finally gave out about a month ago, I seriously doubt that I will waste my time and energy getting a brand new vac repaired. I will probably just get my money back and find someone to repair my old vac because it's probably ten times more reliable. They just don't make things like they used to.
Rated 4 out of 5 by waynee123 Was easy to assemble and works great!
Rated 5 out of 5 by olizzyb30 Love, love, love this vacuum
Has great suction and made my year old carpet feel new again. Nice variety of attachments and easy to switch back and forth between attachments and regular vacuum.
Rated 4 out of 5 by zooler price was right
We like the power of this vacuum, it really picks up deep dirt. The handling is a bit on the heavy side but not unmanageable. We just got a dog and this truly picks up all those dog hairs. Our cleaning lady loves all the attachments being so handy. Good purchase for us.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucyemma It's ok, very heavy
The vacuum has good suction power, but it is very heavy and very plastic.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RonaldB Eureka Vacuum Recommendation
We researched vacuum cleaners from Consumer Reports (used before for cars...). We liked what we say about this vacuum cleaner and bought it, sight unseen. Thus far, it seem to meet billing. We could have spent a lot more on a vacuum (well, not really), but not gotten more performance. Quite pleased, thus far.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Conan74 Buy a Hoover
After having a Hoover Windtunnel for 10 years, which still worked (wife just wanted a new vacuum), this Eureka has validated my faith in Hoover. The Vacuum is only 2 years old and is falling apart. The beater slips horribly, even after replacing the belt. The vacuum also smells horrible after vacuuming more than one room. So you trade clean carpet for an awful smell. Don't buy this product. I have a Eureka cannister, which has lasted 10 years w/ repairs. The Hoover NEVER needed repairs.
Rated 4 out of 5 by laduran Great for the price
This vacuum cleaner is very powerful. We were replacing a similar Eureka Boss vacuum that was quite old and this one is head and shoulders better than the old one. There is quite a lot of suction and the rolling cleaning head at the front pulls so strongly that the vacuum cleaner wants to follow it forward. Of course this means that you need to muscle the vacuum cleaner on the backstroke. So if you are weak, you may have some problems with this cleaner. The hose is nice and long the cord is quite long as well (30 feet). The pet fur claw is interesting but we have zero use for it since we keep our pet outside where it belongs.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chas63 cumbersome
This product was too heay and cumbersome to use for my wife. I found it more difficult than I imagined myself, and I am in great physical condition. So, no argument: we returned it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by wluvr despise this product
It does not work well. We returned the first one because it stopped working after a week and the second one is awful. It does not suction like it should. The bagless container gets full and jammed easily causing the product not to work. The pet hair part does not pick up hair and breaks easily and the brush continues to fall off the back. The duster continues to fall out of the duster container. I have not vacuumed our small home once without an incident. We bought this thinking it would be good because it got good reviews even from consumer reports but so far it has been nothing but disappointment.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JOPLUM good buy
This is my second purchase of this vac,gave one to my future daughter in -law. I really like this vac. The price is good and it works well. Is a bit heavy, which is okay.
Rated 5 out of 5 by QueenB860 Repeat customer
Love this machine!! It's my fourth time buying this vacuum cleaner in the course of 10 years. I have two of these vacuums - one for the first floor and the other for the second floor. It is a heavy machine but it is thorough. I have a two-story house with wall-to-wall carpeting and the vacuum gets everything up. I've only had to replace had to replace it once over the years due to one of my sons trying to "help" me and ended up breaking the machine. Very reliable. I wish they would work on more powerful suction for the hose but it gets everything up when I use it so I would still recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gramarjo Excellent vacuum
It does a great job. Rather noisy but that is okay with me. The only thing I don't like is that it is very hard to get the handle to sit up straight.....I have to force it to click into the upright position.
Again a minor thing!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cleanandpicky Great Vacuum for a great price!
I've had one of these for several years and have been very satisfied so I ordered one for my daughter and her husband for Christmas. Suction is great and picks up everything including pet hair. I like how easy it is to replace the bags without the mess of the bagless type vacs. There are still a LOT of bagless vacuums out there, but this Eureka Boss Smart Vac is truly the "Boss" in upright vacuums and its a terrific buy. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. Go for it, you won't be sorry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KleaningDiva Awesome vacuum for a great price!!
This is my second Eureka Boss SmartVac, my first one finally died after 4 years. I LOVE this vacuum for two main reasons, first it is bagged and second it has great suction power.
Another positive feature/plus is the carpet height adjustment great for my longer napped carpet. Plus if you click it in upright position (with it still on) the rotating brush stops it doesn't sit and spin on your carpet which can ruin your carpet very quickly.
Trust me you wont be disappointed with this vacuum.
Rated 5 out of 5 by eastcoop So far so good!
This vacuum is great! It has great suction and best of all, I can't see big clouds of dust blowing out of it like I did with my old bagless! Unfortunately, most vacuums work great for the first couple of months. Hopefully this one will continue to. It is big and heavy so I would not recommend if you are going to be vacuuming small spaces or going up and down stairs with it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by HmmmmmmmmmmmUmmHmmm Missing Many Parts
I didn't even use the vacuum because it was missing so many parts on arrival including the three screws to attach the handle and 3 attachments. Bought a wet/dry vac from the home improvement store with a dust bag and HEPA filter for about the same price - works awesome.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ilsasgrandmother Reserving final judgement but hopefully it's ok
I have owned a Eureka Boss Smart Vac for several years and just bought a new one for my daughter. Eureka has made several great improvements over my vacuum!! However, I am concerned that after the first day of use, the belt broke. It is not an option to take it to a service center, I would return it before I drove an hour to a service center. After speaking to a supervisor, she insisted that the vacuum needed to be looked at but agreed to send me a new beater bar and two new belts. One thing buyers need to know is that if the vacuum acts like it is self-propelled, then the carpet level is set too low. It is NOT a self-propelled vacuum. So I set the carpet level higher and put on a new belt (which is much easier to do than with my old vacuum). I am trying to be optimistic that this will solve the belt breakage problem. They are sending me a new beater bar because the present beater bar does turn hard. If this solves the belt breakage problem, then I will say that I love this vacuum more than my old one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom3Perris good investment
This is a strong suction vacuum. definitely worth the investment. It comes with all the useful attachments, also an extra bag(total of 2) and an extra belt. When it runs you can't smell any dust or see any particles in the air which I have experienced with the bag less vacuums. Overall, best vacuum I have ever purchased and hopefully will last a long time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by happynowtoclean Great vacuum cleaner - great suction
Great vacuum cleaner - great suction. Clever way it stores the attachments and love that it has a very long cord. The only thing I did not like was that it was heavy. I can put up with the heavy vacuum cleaner as long as it has great suction. All these years I wasn't really getting the dirt up until now. I'd definitely recommend it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by niteowl123abc not satisfied
It has a high pitch whine, I think something is wrong with it. It is very hard to push and very clunky bulky.
